The Indian Ocean is a vast expanse of water that washes three continents- Asia, Australia and Africa. At some places it allows land to break through and form spectacular topographies. Such islands are sought after by those who wish to befriend a calm, clear sea. Of the many islands that lie here, Mauritius is the most beautiful. It is surprising how such a pearl could have been ignored by the Arab seafarers. Rediscovered in 1505 by the enterprising Portuguese, Mauritius changed hands till 1968. The Dutch, French and the British colonized it for three and a half centuries. It retains the French influence, mostly in language.
The island nation is entirely a tourist's paradise. Be it the sea or the villages. The beaches of white sand and turquoise waters are a delight any day. Add to this, the coral reefs with their teeming marine life. The Pereybere public beach, the recently renovated La Cuvette beach, The Blue Bay and The Trou aux Biches are compulsory on the sunbather's and swimmer's itinerary. Nature has decorated the land as well with a variety of plant and animal species. These can be seen in the various national parks and game reserves. The Black River Gorges, Domaine du Chasseur and the Yemen Reserve house the remaining native forest, exotic fauna and herds of deer respectively. The Casela contains 140 different species of birds apart from other zoo animals. Ile aux Aigrettes is the last home to some extremely rare winged creatures.
One can indulge in a variety of water sports in the Waterpark Leisure Village and Ile aux Cerfs. History can be seen in the remains of forts and buildings of the colonizers at Balaclava ruins, Dutch ruins, Martello Towers and Eureka. Beautiful remnants of volcanic activity are on display at Ganga Talao and Chamarel and Rodrigues Island. If you are done with swimming in the crystal waters, try other water sports like parasailing, underwater walking, submarine scootering etc. One can play with the giant tortoises at the Crocodile Park. Speedboat rides, diving, hiking and Blue Safari deserve to be in your organizer.
One’s stay there is bound to be comfortable with the number of lodging and boarding options that are available across various price slabs. The different settlers from France, India, China and Africa have gifted rich recipes that please the palate in more ways than one.

But seeing its changes from its foundation last 1909, Baguio grew a lot faster ... Read full Blog post
San Gimignano and San Pellegrino
Night falls on the flourishing and industrious San Gimignano, its 72 towers stand on the low roofs of the houses lit by the moon. This is not a luxury travel spot but is something you don't see every day. In the distance the clatter of hooves echoed tired in the Via Francigena. The hand of the blacksmith stops beating, the frame of the weaver becomes silent, the streets of the tank only a concert ... Read full Blog post
